    Terry, thank you for the videos & pictures, looks like quite a few people attended, bunches of detectors, some nice dirt riding metal was brought along, some comfy living was also brought along, 'some folks' drive/ride fast, lots of country to be out in and some interesting comments about the ML equipment.

    I thought your side bar was very interesting - a GPZ 7000, Equinox 600 (? why not the 800), of course the lone Tesoro and then some interesting support equipment. And of course the net address for knives (that I've not gotten back to yet).

    So the still pictures - the first bunch had of course the first 'music', so what are you usually doing when you are listening to it? (not the personal stuff) The Donkeys brought back memories of Way Back When several buddies and I went out back of Bakersfield, like up a dirt road that had the creek flowing down it that took us in to an old mining district roughly one valley over from Death Valley. That particular dry country valley had its own donkeys so I smiled when I saw them in your picture. After several days of jeeping 'out there', on our way out we noticed a Nice waterfall (may not exist now due to drought) so we stop for a truly needed bath. Fun time but no comfy living on that trip!!................63bkpkr

    Nice Terry!! Looks like you were up the Little San Domingo if I am not mistaken. I recognize the steel jackass on the mountain, the big old mine ruins and those graves from my trip out there a year ago. Looks like a fun trip!!

    I got the 600 for the beach here in New York, as well as dirt and farm field hunting. I was holding out for a chance to win a Gold Monster 1000, at Bill's outing, but all I won in the raffle was an AMRA Beanie! I have the GPZ for hunting big and deep gold, so I think I'll get a Gold Monster after seeing it up against the Equinox 800, for the small shallow stuff. Usually listening to a mix that is too eclectic for most folks (Lakeside to King Crimson). Love the Equinox for the beach, park, and field hunting - just LOVE it!

    Sent you and email on the questions you had on the other items!

    Terry,

    It was good to listen to some solid tips from people that have spent many years and many hours refining the detecting process!

    Thanks for taking the opportunity, and for taking the time to be thoughtful enough to pass those tips along.

    All the best,

    Lanny
